A Reimagining in Washington Divides the Neighbors

Washington -- From her second-floor bedroom window two miles north of the United Stats Capitol, Doris Newton can graze across a grassy field and reservoir at Founder's Library Clock Tower at Howard University, her alma mater.  She fervently hopes her view won't change.
